Hello, everyone. We are in the middle of the Golden Week in Japan, and I guess you all are enjoying your vacation, listening to this program, hopefully in a nice resort area or your hometown. Today I will first take up an important article on the recent problems between Japan on one hand and China and South Korea on the other, written by two researchers at Pacific Forum of CSIS in Hawaii. Then I will have a special guest in this studio, Professor Emiko Magoshi, who is well known for her own radio program and a number of authored books on trans-cultural communication. Today, I will ask Professor Magoshi about how to learn and improve your English skills by using the Internet. It should be quite interesting, so please stay turned.
Today we will take up an important article "East Asia: Blame Enough to Go Around," written by Brad Glosserman and Scott Snyder, both researchers at the Pacific Forum of CSIS in Honolulu, who say that deteriorating relations among Japan, South Korea and China underscore the failure of leadership in all three countries. All three governments should set a strategic vision that promotes cooperation over conflict: the U.S. can contribute by providing reassurance to the three.
Today, I will have a special guest here in this studio, Professor Emiko Magoshi, who is well known for her research and practice in trans-cultural communication. I will interview her by focusing on her most recent book on how to improve your English skills by making use of contents on the web. I will also ask her about her specialized topic, that is, trans-cultural management.
(Interview with Professor Magoshi in Japanese)
In the interview, Professor Magoshi emphasized the word "trans-cultural," which sounds more positive than "cross-cultural." It may be because "trans" seems to imply some kind of synergy, while "cross" sounds like pure efforts to overcome differences.
